School Based Immunization Programs

School clinics are held every year by the Vaccine Preventable Diseases Program. Grade 7 boys and girls are eligible for vaccines against Hepatitis B, Human Papillomavirus (HPV) and Meningitis. Annual high school immunization clinics take place for those students who require their 10 year tetanus booster as well as any additional vaccines that were missed throughout their childhood.
